This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

No Horsing Around Here

The 66 gorgeous horses in Odysseo – the traveling fantastical production by Cavalia – mean business. They move in elaborate patterns, often carrying acrobatic riders, at times under the canopy of trapeze artists, and always with elegance.

Odysseo A

The audience is transported to a mystical world where every moment is a visual tour de force. Horses gallop down a 35-foot mountain which changes with the choreography to a succession of territorial scenes from around the world. A waterfall appears, and then a massive pool of water. The horses seamlessly continue the performance, as their hooves send water flying in sync with an airy musical accompaniment.

Throughout the show, I was especially impressed with the loving guidance the horses received. Even the beautiful, young stallion with an obstreperous streak was brought back into the fold with a reassuring pat.

Everything about Odysseo is a work of art, even the lighted beams that hold up the bleachers inside the tent.
